Good episode? Give it some love!
Colorado Land Link Coordinator Amanda Laban talks about preventing the loss of US farm land by matching food producers with arable acreage, a task made more urgent as the average age of American farmers continues to climb, and the loss of farmland and agribusiness consolidation continue to take a toll on small and midsize farms. It’s a program that can help new farmers get their start, and established businesses pass their acreage to a new generation, but it’s in need of broader and deeper-pocketed support.
